, the persecution started to come into my life. my mother asked me, do you love your religion more than your parents? i told her, i love both. she hated me for following christ, and she used to say bad words to me. >> reporter: physical attacks soon followed. she says her mother threatened to kill her with a sickle and blind her with a nail. >> my mother told me, if you're blind, you will stop going to church. she took the nail, pushed me to the ground, and tried to stick the nail into my eyes. i moved, and the nail hit my ear. >> reporter: sarada escaped to the jungle where she now lives with a friend. christians not only come under attack from co-workers and family members, but also churches come under fire from maoist and hindu militants. one point in case is this church in the remote area of southeastern nepal. >> good to see you, brother. god bless you. let's sit down and have you tell me what's been going on here with your church. >> non-believers came to our church and demanded that we join their festival and worship idols. we told them we don't worship like this. >> reporter: the christians
it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promo
religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
. but those outside of the religion outside of the space, were surprised because they thought annapolis was so traditional. guess again. the national cathedral where presidents are blessed after inauguration, and where they and other national figures are remembered in death. today the spot light falls on the marble and stone again after it was announced that same-sex weddings will be conducted within its walls. >> i am surprised. >> the dean of the cathedral said the move was due in part to the recent legalization of same- sex marriage in maryland. but mainly, it was time. >> the church has been looking at this issue for the last two decades. for us inside the church, this is the natural culmination of the process. >> the director of religion and faith for the human rights campaign. >> this is a benchmark in the history of our nation when art national cathedral says we are moving forward. >> the national organization for marriage, which supports marriages only between a man and woman say the simplest way to prevent same-sex ceremonies in charges is to fight for the recognition of marriage in c
in his application process ryan made some sort of statements denying his religion and that's why his application was rejected. ryan's family says that is simply not true. they believe their son's application was denied because of his sexual orientation. allie rasmus. >>> governor brown slammed the allegations of prison allegations. >> i've read most of those. >> i read some of them. >> the senator pounded one of the reports. he says it's time to return to state control. >> california is a powerful state. we can run our own prisons. and by god let those judges give us our prisons back we'll run them right. >> brown said it would take -- he would take his fight to the u.s. supreme court if necessary. >> federal judges imposed a prison population cap back in 2009 after they found that overcrowding violates inmates constitutional rights. the state is already sending thousands of less serious offenders to local jails under a law passed just under a year ago. this new federal order would require california reduce the prison population by 33,000 more inmates to about 110,000 total prisoners
. to be fair to all persons. all ethnicities, all sexual orientations, and religions. an african-american, a woman. don't lose sight of the purpose of the conversation today. today jane and i want to make a statement that oftentimes foreshadowed when you don't have the pulpit. today we successfully have demonstrated that even the sidelines, even the corner, you can raise your voice, have another opportunity, another option, viable, strong, that has integrity, is thoughtful, filled with love and compassion. that is what leadership is about. stepping forth outside of your comfort zone and doing things sometimes when people to the left and to the right, no pun intended, are not able to do at that particular moment. so - as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the march in washington, the commemoration of the first time in history san francisco mayor has been led by an asian american, five board of supervisors; we are leaving the country. they are watching and paying attention. every person that can hear my voice, every
religion will come under al tackth if obama is reelected, this country is over!

[ laughter ] it brings us back to the more direct issue of guns. >> gun control doesn't work. >> jon: or not. [ laughter ] i keep forgetting what else? >> we have a mental health system in this country completely and totally collapsed. >> jon: okay, okay. again, 100%. thank you, wayne lapeeer far bringing this up. the mentally ill live on the streets and are in prison. it's up to us to help them find proactive care. this is what we have to address. >> we have no national database of these lunatics. >> jon: or that. or that. [ laughter ] i was going to say compassionate total care of mental illness or lunatic database. although isn't that what the internet is? isn't that a national database. what would be the criteria for the lunatic database? what would you say to get on i
. host: democratic caller. caller: republicans always find their religion when measures are needed that do not affect areas that are concerned by them. when katrina relief was needed, the federal debt and deficit was ballooning, and we did not see anybody spending up there, and we needed of since 36 offsets all the way up until the president got into -- needed offsets' until this president got into office. everything was already in place under republican-led spending, but now they have found religion and want to cut these programs said affect people that did not cause the economic downturn or the ballooning of the debt. they always find religion what it does not affect them. guest: let me just be clear that the club for growth has had a clear position on this. we are accused of being uncarin g let it comes to disaster relief, and it is not fair, because we want people to get the relief they need to love but we believe it should be paid for. the government should set money aside for emergencies. we can predict there will be emergencies every year. history has done that they will hel
launched an interfaith speakers bureau where we take out representatives of the 5 major religions and do the same thing and we model in front of high school and middle school students how the faiths can sit down like we are sitting here today and have conversations about our commonalities but about our differences as well. many of the comments we get from students is, wow, you guys can sit up there and talk because most of the pictures our students see are the ones that have been playing across our screens the last 2 or 3 days. we hope by challenging that we can prevent bullying and harassment we've been seeing here today. >> thank you, amina stacy is manager of communications for the los angeles giants. >> if you think about what our mission is, you probably think our mission is to win the world series every year, which hopefully this year we're on the right track, but actually our mission statement, we just went through an exercise but our mission statement has always been to enrich the community through innovation. and it's very, i am very proud of the fact that the giants have been
, the potential jurors noted they have daily and meaningful contact with a person of another race or religion. and then i had another trial after this was done in another jurisdiction that shall go unnamed, and i would say there were maybe 5 percent of the jurors, potential jurors, who had had meaningful contact with a person of a different race or ethnicity and that's really what this is about. one of my least favorite words is the word tolerance because, you know, i tolerate brussel sprouts but if you simply tolerate the diversity that is america, you are going to, you are aspiring for mediocrity. when we have, and this gets back to your question, when we have leaders that embrace diversity and that build a culture that says, you know what, if you want to compete in the global economy tomorrow, pal, you've got to embrace diversity. why does coca-cola write a brief to the united states supreme court and general motors and microsoft on issues of diversity and higher education? because they know if they want to get ahead, they've got to embrace that diversity. if they want to continue to b
to be depressed. >>> time now 4:51. an unlikely combination of civil rights and religion. still ahead, what will soon happen in one of the nation's most prominent churches. >> a self-help guru has fears of his own. how he conquered them in the san francisco bay. >>> around the bay area today, we have some 30s and also some dense fog in the valleys. 40s elsewhere. a chance of rain as we get toward the afternoon. we'll talk about that coming up. >> taking a live look at some of our traffic cameras for you this morning. here's a live look at the golden gate, bay bridge and milpitas commute. so far off to a nice start. got word of a new accident south san jose. we'll update you on that coming up. >> thank you. >>> wedding bells will soon be ringing for same-sex couples in washington, d.c. cathedral officials say the washington national cathedral will be among the first episcopal congregations to implement a new rite every marriage for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender members. they will announce the policy today. the cathedral has been used for pr
caller. >> caller: it's deplorable that republicans always find their religion when measures are needed that doesn't affect areas of their concern. i didn't see anybody asking for offsets when, and the federal debt and deficit was blooming with george bush, and nobody wanted offsets to help those in the disaster relief all the way up until this president got in office. he came in with a federal debt and deficit already ballooned, but everybody found religion on spending after george bush hut the wars on the credit card and the medicare part d on the credit card. it was under already, and now they found religion and cut all programs that affect people that didn't cause the downturn or didn't cause the ballooning of the debt so they find religion when it doesn't affect them. >> guest: the club for growth had a consistent position on this. we are akooked of being uncaring when it comes time to disaster relief, and it's an up fair accusation because we want people to get help that they need, but we think it ought to be paid for and not to put the burden or spread the burden larger. it shoul
religion all you want. we took a moral structure that help a lot of people and made it uncool. elite think it's stupid. elites didn't need it. now you have a society that could have used it that doesn't. >> eric: dan ab, you pointed something out. oxygen network is founded, one of the cofounders is oprah winfrey. with the expressed purpose of empowering women. this program doesn't look like anything she was thinking about. >> dana: probably wasn't. i don't know her but i assume she doesn't like this thing. she has a successful program. one thing that was great about the talk show she did, he is would inspire people. people came on or maybe they had a hard time but then they would figure out a way to makebe the life better so everybody wanted to watch it. i still love game shows. "wheel of fortune" and ""jeopardy"." i get excited for people when they win and i feel bad for people when they lose. i resemble that remark, definitely. i draw the line at humiliatio humiliation. i like the reality show, we find talent, where you go on a wild goose chase and find things. you work with a partner to
it's not -- football has nothing to do with it, it's a disgrace. >> let me ask you, in my religion, it's good to suffer some penance in admission of guilt, and then you move on. but when you try to cover something up and you don't confess or accept punishment for it, it stays with you. why doesn't penn state want to get this over with, take their punishment and penalty and get in the huddle and figure out the future? why do they want to go back at this thing when everybody knows they were guilty? >> well, i think penn state probably does want to continue on and get this behind them. and i think it needs to be pointed out this is governor corbett acting independent of penn state. even though he has sat on the board of trustees. listen, chris. i share the skepticism of buzz s bying bissinger about the acts. he has taken a thumping in the polls personally. this litigation might be popular with litigations. one of the reason he's taken such a hurt is people look at him and wonder why as attorney general it took so long for him to move on sandusky. why when he had one credible reporter
's major religions right now including the evangelical churches to say this is a moral and religious issue, okay. from our worldview, from our standpoint, this is crucial both because we were commanded by god in genesis to till and tend the garden, to care for his creation which when he created he kept telling us, "it is good." okay, it is our responsibility they would say to take care of his creation, and that the kinds of things that we are currently doing to the planet are essentially violating that promise. but moreover, we're also seeing the theme of social justice, that we've been commanded, they would say, to take care of the least of these. the poor, the sick, the powerless both in our own country and around the world. and many churches, in fact, have invested enormous resources, i mean, sending their young people abroad to do great works to try to help people who desperately need that help. their argument would be how can we in good conscience ignore a problem that's just going to push millions of more people around the world into those exact same kinds of circumstances we're tryi
to join weekly yoga and meditation classes. fortunately, the military seems intent on driving religion out and replacing it with wacky substitutes. atheists warship centers and now meditation classes. but none of them are as effective or as scruff as personal relationship with god. unfortunately though, it is mind over what matters and that's faith. >> yoga helps you stay limber. >> they're not forcing marines to participate in yoga classes. >> stephanie: one sergeant said i felt more relaxed i noticed i wasn't tense all the time. >> it is helping to shut your brain down for a little bit so you can relax. >> focus and be in the moment which you need to be in combat. >> stephanie: kundalini yoga sounds dirty. >> what is that? >> stephanie: it is a kind of yoga. >> i know nothing about yoga. >> stephanie: downward dog sounds gay. >> i don't know what that is either. >> stephanie: okay. it is a yoga pose. >> like i said, i know nothing about yoga. i'm not terribly bendy. >> stephanie: okay. rush limbaugh. >> there is a movement on to normalize pedophilia. i guarantee you your reaction to that
of people in prison, finding some kind of religion is a way for solace and for community building in the prison. but so, there is, there's something a lot of kind of good community building that comes with that, that's why the aclu has actually been, has litigated to protect the religious rights of christians, access to places to worship and things like that, because there's actually a lot of good that can come from people find that kind of community. >> one more question. >> i heard that aclu wodehouse people veteran prison. what about people who have been through prison -- with police misconduct or whatever it is. you know, what could be done? [inaudible] the other thing where they take the charges off. i forget what it's called. >> yes. we do a lot of work on police reform. our affiliates especially work on excessive and abusive force cases. they do work on racial profiling matters. we kind of run the gamut on police misconduct and police reforms. we are sometimes working in collaboration with police departments to reform their policies and practices and training. and so we do
. connell: think about this and take as you said take religion out of it for a moment because it brings up kind of the wider discussion of how do we use technology to, you know, make us more efficient or even make us safer. we're having all these discussions in schools about after the shooting in connecticut maybe something like this or more technology would be used. but you can't force people to do it, you're saying. >> let me try and crystallize the argument for you, one school of thought is you need to balance safety with freedom. and then freedom will include privacy. another school of thought is safety and privacy are not equal. privacy is the greater good. privacy is a natural right. i can keep myself safe, but i need the government to stay away from me to keep my privacy. there's no balance between them. it's a bias in favor of privacy. the burden should be on the government to prove why this is necessary, not on the defendant, the student, to prove why this is harmful. dagen: but the momentum is toward greater security. >> yes, the government either based on sound reasoning and log
. >> stripper poles. >> i was going to say religion but i thought it would be inappropriate. >> maybe. >> so, you know, there is a lot of movement on this whole gun control thing which i think, you know, it's good for the country, for one. for us to have this conversation about gun control and clearly figure out what gun control really means for, you know, this country, especially after sandy hook and a lot of other stuff that's happened but interestingly enough, joe biden will be meeting with the nra. that was announced by jay carney. let's get the clip of that. >>? >> this is not a problem that can be somed by gun legislation alone. it is not a problem that can be solved by any specific action or single action that the government might take. it's a problem that encompasses issues of mental health of he had cations as well as access to guns. >> i think interesting about that, you know, i think we have to, you can't just look at banning guns in a vacuum. you have to look at all of the things surrounding gun violence in this currentlyountry. i think that i
exercise of religion, applies to these companies that have principles that the owners of these companies have religious convictions and to force or compel someone to violate their conscience is exactly what the free exercise clause of the constitution of the united states was designed to prevent. and this is turned that upside down. i think the obama administration just needs to go back and rewrite their exemptions here. and that would solve this problem. this could be handled administratively. so far the obama administration, president obama's administration has no desire to do that. that's why we're in court. bill: i understand you're looking for delay on this, but meantime us does the company pay the fine? >> they don't have to until the fine is assessed. i used to work with treasury. the question will be when will the actual fine be assessed against the company. that's where i think the department of justice and the department of labor should hold back and wait until the cases are adjudicated. bill: which reached -- >> most of the cases go in our favor, i understand the point you're
to and resort to their private matters, based on their ritual, that prescribe to their beliefs and religion. >> one of your advisers, speaking of egyptian jews, caused controversy the other day, when he suggested that egyptian jews living in israel should come back to egypt. >> translator: these words were said in a specific context, and the one who said it said it in this way to demonstrate what he wanted to say from his point of view. but there are many media outlets that removed it from the general context. however, he is no longer an adviser to me, because now he is a member of the legislative counsel in the shirra council and he is most likely a leader in this council, and it is not right to group the legislative council and the executive council together in this stage, because he is not my adviser now. cnn correspondent ian lee has been in egypt for several years and speaks arabic. he says there are serious divisions within the country. so talk about those divisions. >> well, on one side, you have the opposition, which in the past, has been unorganized. at this time, against present,
at a relatively slow rate because we're a mature economy and too many people out there -- >> not religions, ngulatioregulh government policy -- >> it is but the world environment is too intense. >> what do you think, michael? >> there's truth and valid points. one thing is interesting, believing you will have a robust -- earnings will be driven by the consumers supposedly putting in double-digits growth in the next few months. byron hit good points, expecting things to come down. this cocktail being brewed up in washington. if you were a business leader and listened to these guys on calls, would you want to be drinking with what these guys are brewing? i don't know. i think they will be conservative. i don't think you will have a cap x driver behind uncertainty. there's a lot of wild cards. a ssymmetrical performance.ear it's a mixed bag and no conviction in the marketplace, so much contradictory information, some says things are better and things are worse. >> corporations have had it good in terms of profit margins, interest rates, ability to borrow. >> they're peeking. >> the only way t
not defined by blood or religion but a conscious choice. in shaping the international environment for space activity, the u.s. should build a more prosperous world in which our values are taken beyond. we should also exercise some humility in facing the unknown. in their time these projects were controversial and criticized. who today would have said they should not have been done? we have seen these efforts to define us as a nation who pioneers the next frontier. we are all in this together, white house, congress, international partners and many u.s. companies that operate the capabilities. in think this committee for holding this hearing today. i will be happy to answer any questions you might have. >> thank you. i think all of you for your testimony. the committee limits questioning to five minutes for each of us. i will open a round of question. i do not ever like to say this is my last day. i do not anything last. i do not even like them to call an airport a terminal. i am thinking of the wonderful testimony you have given in the time it took you to get that ensued deliver it to us. it
